Marker Rods

A good marker rod is actually a lousy fishing rod! The top 18" or so needs to be quite dead in action and this helps you to feel more of the contours of the lake bed – the reason why most carp rods are unsuitable for markering. Free Spirit was the first to offer dedicated marker rods knowing the importance of this tool.

Recently we launched two new Marker rods, the Hi-'S' Marker and the 'S' Marker. These have been developed with extreme ranges in mind to complement our distance carp rods and allow exploration of features at ranges up to and in the right hands well in excess of 160 yards.
All rods have depth marks for easy measurement.

 

The Hi-'S' Marker Rod

Built using the same 40t Low Resin Carbon as the Hi-'S' Carp rods there has been no compromise with this Marker rod and the rod will not appreciably soften even with heavy use. The benefit of the ultra-high modulus carbon is the transmission of the slightest tremors caused by variations in the bottom down the blank and the stiffer tip drastically reduces the bumping effect which bounces the lead along the bottom as opposed to dragging it across every contour.
These rods are hand built in the U.K. and can be customised to suit.

The 'S'-Range Marker Rod

Built to match the 'S' Range carp rods using 36t Low Resin carbon with a 3k weave this Marker is capable of extreme ranges to match the best casting tools in the rod range and mean you are not fishing 'blind' at range. The stiffer tip and strong middle to butt section allow the slightest contour changes to be felt and distinguish between different bottom make up and weed. This rod does not soften to any degree with hard use and is built using the same fittings as the carp rod range.
Hand built in the U.K. with full custom build available.

The Searcher Marker Rods

We offer two actions – the Multi-Range Marker (MRM) and the Long Range Marker (LRM) – both are available in 40mm or long range 50mm ringing. The MRM (Multi-Range Marker) is suitable for the majority of anglers being capable of casting in excess of 100yards with leads up to 3½oz whilst the LRM (Long Range Marker) is suited to people who want to explore at extreme ranges with leads up to and exceeding 4oz. All marker rods have a 1' and 2' depth mark up the rod.
Built from 40t carbon with 3k weave and 'Perdurable' blank finish these rods match the 'E'-Class carp rod range although many customer's using Hi-'S', 'S' range or other rods have these in their armoury.
Can be custom built at a small additional charge.
